Artful Dodge Discussion

-Logician on pump spells

1 day ago

For green, the main color you'd expect for pump spells, I'd say for sure Become Immense deserves to at least be talked about. Other ones on the list are Berserk, Vines of Vastwood, Mutagenic Growth, Invigorate, and Might of Old Krosa. For an entire team, I like Triumph of the Hordes, Overrun, Overwhelming Stampede, and Craterhoof Behemoth.

For red pump spells, you want to steer your thinking away from huge power increases and look closer at double strike. Assault Strobe and Temur Battle Rage stand out. You can use cards like Trumpet Blast for an entire team. There are lots of variations.

White is less about pumping, and more about protection. Look for cards like Brave the Elements, Apostle's Blessing, and my personal favorite, Shelter.

For black, there's little to discuss for pump spells. I really like Tainted Strike and Hatred, and just about nothing else. There's some that offer deathtouch.

For blue, you usually don't pump your creatures as much as you make them unblockable, or de-pump your opponent's creatures. Much is the case with Artful Dodge and Hydrosurge. Sometimes a blue pump spell will pump toughness, but not power, and sometimes offers hexproof. Like Mizzium Skin.

Y'all gotta appreciate the irony of Artful Dodge in a turtle deck.

ChaosEngineer on One drops?!? And a T3 win?!?

doozy I've thought the same thing and I'll test out the Slip Through Space but Artful Dodge offers the tried and true combo of cast, flashback, exile for 2 mana that's hard to let go of.

Slip Through Space instead of Artful Dodge? In a deck like this I feel like drawing a card is more important than being able to flashback.

TheRedGoat on Quick and Unblockable!! Turn 2 wins

This actually looks really good. Though I have 2 questions.

Firstly, couldn't Apostle's Blessing double as an unblockable effect and rule out the need for Slip Through Space or Artful Dodge ?

Secondly, how well do you think Scourge Wolf could do in this kind of strategy?

play Polymorph with only colossus as the creature. then give it a Artful Dodge and you win.

@Not_Yet_Flawless: I used to run both Think Twice and Desperate Ravings but I found them to be weak in the deck slot when you can run better draw spells or cheaper cantrip. I don't know if Artful Dodge fits in here, what do you think?

The combo does work in this way:

  1. Cast Rite of Replication targeting a creature on the battlefield. (stack: Rite of Replication)

  2. Cast Dualcaster Mage. (stack: Dualcaster Mage on top of Rite of Replication)

  3. Dualcaster Mage resoves, the trigger ability targets Rite of Replication. (stack: Dualcaster Mages triggered ability on top of Rite of Replication)

  4. Dualcaster Mages triggered ability resolves, copying Rite of Replication, targeting Dualcaster Mage. (stack: copy of Rite of Replication on top of Rite of Replication)

  5. Copy of Rite of Replication resolves copying Dualcaster Mage, the triggered ability of the token copies the original Rite of Replication. (stack: token Dualcaster Mages triggered ability on top of Rite of Replication.)

  6. Repeat steps 4 and 5 a million times, then proceed to get overkilled by an opposing Incite Rebellion... Hilarious!
